How we change what others think, feel, believe and do
Get other people to do as you suggest by showing how your knowledge of how the world works can help you guide them to successful action.
You can help this be more effective by beforehand building your credibility as a person who knows how the world works and can pronounce with authority and wisdom on a range of topics. One of the most important aspects of doing this is simply to display confidence in your assertions.

The basic premise of this approach is 'I know what works'. By positioning yourself as an expert on how the world works, you can credibly pronounce on all kinds of matters.
If you prove to be right (or can convince them you were right) over time, then they will increasingly turn to you for advice and may even become dependent on you, seeking your opinion in all kinds of matters.
